History never tasted so good.

When the 8th Earl of Carnarvon pursued his passions in Egypt, never in his wildest dreams could he have expected to stumble upon King Tut’s tomb. But that is exactly what he and Howard Carter did in November 1922. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of their incredible find, Highclere Castle Gin created a limited-edition spirit, aging our award winning gin in a selective mix of French Armagnac casks, Scotch and American whiskey barrels. The ensuing liquid has been imbibed with notes of honey, smoke, and citrus. This gin embodies the spirit of Ancient Egypt and Lord Carnarvon’s greatest adventure. It also makes for excellent cocktails.



2 oz. Highclere Castle Barrel Aged Gin
0.5 oz. Dry Vermouth
1 Dash Orange Bitters

Stir with love and ice. Strain into a freezer chilled coupe. Garnish with lemon zest.
